We create our customised manager which will fork child process with baseManager. Because we registered SIGCHLD to reap the zombie for manager, we found this causes baseManager raise RemoteError when called twice.(Test script attached.)

After look at we found recv() in handling the request has been interrupted by comming SIGCHLD, not retry recv(), but raise to client side directly.

                methodname = obj = None

                request = recv()<------------------this line been interrupted by SIGCHLD

                ident, methodname, args, kwds = request

                obj, exposed, gettypeid = id_to_obj[ident]

                if methodname not in exposed:

                    raise AttributeError(

                        'method %r of %r object is not in exposed=%r' %

                        (methodname, type(obj), exposed)


                function = getattr(obj, methodname)

                    res = function(*args, **kwds)

                except Exception, e:

                    msg = ('#ERROR', e)


                    typeid = gettypeid and gettypeid.get(methodname, None)

                    if typeid:

                        rident, rexposed = self.create(conn, typeid, res)

                        token = Token(typeid, self.address, rident)

                        msg = ('#PROXY', (rexposed, token))


                        msg = ('#RETURN', res)
            except AttributeError:
                if methodname is None:
                    msg = ('#TRACEBACK', format_exc())
                        fallback_func = self.fallback_mapping[methodname]
                        result = fallback_func(
                            self, conn, ident, obj, *args, **kwds
                        msg = ('#RETURN', result)
                    except Exception:
                        msg = ('#TRACEBACK', format_exc())

            except EOFError:
                util.debug('got EOF -- exiting thread serving %r',

            except Exception:<------does not handle IOError,INTR here should retry recv() 
                msg = ('#TRACEBACK', format_exc())
